Lars Tunbjörk
[Photographer, b. 1956, Borås, Sweden, d. 2015, Stockholm.]

 I try to take photos like an alien, or a small child. 

Minor White
[Photographer, writer, and theorist, b. 1908, Minneapolis, Minnesota, d. 1976, Cambridge, Massachusetts.]

 The secret, the catch, and power lies in being able to use the forms and shapes of objects in front of the camera for their expressive-evocative qualities... the ability to see the visual world as the plastic material for the photographer’s expressive purposes. 

Paolo Pellegrin
[Photographer, b. 1964, Rome, lives in Paris.]

 You want to be more vulnerable because that’s how your photography becomes more human. In a sense you want to become a totally blank canvas so the subject or situation reflects him or itself upon you. 

Ernst Haas
[Photographer, b. 1921, Vienna, Austria, d. 1986, New York City.]

 The best zoom lens is your legs. 

Gueorgui Pinkhassov
[Photographer, b. 1952, Moscow, lives in Paris.]

 Don’t be afraid to take bad pictures, because good pictures are the mistakes of bad pictures. 

John Gossage

Paul Graham
[Photographer, b. 1956, Stafford, England, lives in New York.]

 [Photography is] so easy it’s ridiculous. It’s so easy that I can’t even begin—I just don’t know where to start. After all, it’s just looking at things. We all do that. It’s simply a way of recording what you see—point the camera at it, and press a button. How hard is that?
